T Stands for Two Weeks

I'm not really sure where the past two weeks went to, but WOOOSH! Here it is Tuesday again and time to catch up with all The T-Gang at Elizabeth's blog.
The first week I was absent was due to two sick granddaughters, about a third of both of their classes were absent with the flu that week. Then last week a dear friend of mine ended up in the hospital with pneumonia and we were all rallying around her.
Even though we had a very sick friend in the hospital, we did take time to celebrate Lea's 75th birthday at Bill Lee's Chinese restaurant. One of our favorite lunch spots.......lunch specials are only $10.00 and none of us can finish them, so there are always take-out boxes for all of us.

Look what I found!! MY own "world in a cup" cup
Even a compass inside to keep me on the straight and narrow! LOL!


I took this photo of Hannah when she was about 5, we were at the beach and she was just walking along the edge water listening to the music inside her.  I just happened to notice and grabbed my camera.  It has always been one of my favorite photos and always wanted to paint it.....but always held back.

I had already painted and collage this canvas, that I had painted black, to hide the really bad tulips (LOL) So this morning I decided to give the painting a try.....this is where I am at right now.  It will eventually say "I Hope You Dance"

Well, here it is almost lunch time and I need to get this linked to Elizabeth's T-Party
Hope you will join us with a drink or food related post.......and if you get the chance

Fantastic painting, wow. Love the new cup. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie
I'm sorry to hear of illnesses in your friends/family circle and trust all are well or on the mend now. That world mug is a wonderful thing! I'd always pick it for my morning cuppa if I had such a thing. The closest thing to travel in my world right now ;) Your painting is _good_ and shows the life of the dance in your photo. You have talent for capturing the movement :) Happy T Tuesday!

The painting is stunning just as it is! Such a happy feeling piece. I do like your new cup. Hope all those you love are getting well by now.
For some reason, I thought I had been here. So sorry to read about your friend with pneumonia. I was down and out for DAYS with it, too. I hope she is better soon.

I'm liking that painting already. I know it will be stunning once you have finished it.

Your lunch looks wonderful and I always LOVE Chinese food, too. Thanks for sharing your art and your Chinese food and all those drinks with us for T this Tuesday. LOVED the mug, too.

I hope your family and friends are on the mend. Nice that you were able to celebrate your friend's birthday. Looks like quite a feast. I smiled at your world in a cup. I like the compass so you can find your way home if you ever get lost. What a sweet photograph of Hannah and your painting of it is amazing. Happy T Day

I'm sorry to hear so many people are poorly. I hope you are well and that the others will get better soon.
Wow, your drawing of Hannah is awesome.
The Chinese food looks really yummy. I love Chinese food, but I don't always trust the restaurants.
And yes, your mug is a firm favorite. It makes you want to travel.
Happy belated T-Day,

What tough times, Krisha. I'm happy to hear everyone is better ... and that you were able to take time out for a birthday celebration at a Chinese restaurant. I love good Chinese food and Bill Lee's food look delicious.

Love your world cup. It reminds me of T-lady Kathy's Yellowstone cup.

Even though it's not finished yet, I adore your Hannah dancing page. I did dance today (grin).

Happy T-day! Eileen xx

Wow, your painting is wonderful. I love it as it is.
Glad you enjoyed a meal out with friends - reminds me of the times I spent with my friend in America (she passed last May) - we had a favourite Chinese restaurant we used to go to ever such a lot whilst over there. In fact we had just the three of us or with another friend tagging along up to the hole family of about 14. Happy Days - thanks for the memory flooding back.
Nice to see you on Bloglovin' - long time since we corresponded but I still think of you.
Hugs, Neet xx

Your canvas is absolutelly Gorgeous Krisha !! Love the lovely figure of your granddaughter, the layers, and fabulous colours. It´s a great Artwork !
I hope your family and friend are now much better. This world in a cup is so cute!! and the celebration may have been beautiful.
I want to thank you very much for your visit and your so kind comment at my blog, very appreciated.
I wish you a very nice Friday,
Big hugs, Caty
I hope you see this comment, Krisha. For reasons I won't go into, I have been locked out of blogger. This is a devastating problem for me, especially since I am in the middle of my recycle campaign. However, I have set up a HOPEFULLY temporary blog to get me through until I can reclaim mine. Please tell everyone you know, and please visit me starting tomorrow (April 20) at:


Even if you don't normally visit me daily, I could use the support right now. Thank you and Happy Easter.
